POISON IN FOOD VERMONT WOMAN DEAD HER HUSBAND CRITICALLY ILL AND A SON IS RECOVERING Morrisville Vt Dec 31— Mrs New ell Ellsworth Is dead her husband crit ically ill and their 10-years-old son se riously sick as the result according to Health Officer C C Rubles of eating food in which poison had been placed by the mother during a temporary fit of insanity The report of the health officer which was also signed by Dr G L Bates the family physician was made public last night after a thorough investiga tion at the Ellsworth home yesterday The family were poisoned more than two weeks ago Mrs Ellsworth died early yesterday and the chances are against the recovery of her husband The son is recovering The doctors learned that Mrs Ellsworth had been in a weak mental con dition for some time past On the night of Dec 14 shortly after the evening meal Mr and Mrs Ellsworth and their young son were taken violently ill It was at first believed that the illness had been induced by insufficiently cooked food but Dr Bates who was summoned to attend the cases found that the family was suffering from poison which appeared to have been nut in the food His Investigation yesterday proved to the satisfaction of both nimaeir ana Health Officer Rubles that Mrs Ellsworth while suffering from homicidal mania mixed the poison with the food served at supper Young Ellsworth responded readily to the treatment administered by Dr Bates but the condition of his father and mother grew rapidly worse Mrs Ellsworth early yesterday succumbed and when Dr Bates left the bedside of Mr Ellsworth last night he said the condition of the poisoned man was critical It Is not probable that further official action will be taken by the authorities the report submitted by Drs Bates and Rubles showing satisfactorily that the woman was mentally irresponsible MRS HOSTETTER WEDS TO PLEASE DYING MAN Widow of Millionaire Weds Morton C Nichols That His Aged Father May Pass Last Days Happily New York Dec 31 — The approaching death of aged William S Nichols it was learned yesterday was the reason for the hastening of the wedding of his son Morton Colton Nichols to Mrs Allene Hostetter widow of Theodore Hostetter whose gambling propensities were the wonder of even the most bold of the Waldorf set The ceremony was performed by Rev Ernest Stiles at St Thomas's church on Tuesday before only a few of the most intimate friends of the families The bridegroom left the side of his father only when it was time to go to the church and so soon as the wedding was over returned with his bride to re ceive his blessing It was the earnest wish of the elder Nichols who is 82 years old to see his son happily mar ried before his death and this acconv plished he declared that he couid die happy He insisted upon their de parture on a wedding trip to tjanada- Upon their return Mr and Mrs Nicn ols will reside temporarily at No 3 East Seventy -sixth street until the house now being built for them on Park avenue near Thirty-seventh street is completed The marriage or Mrs Hostetter is not a surprise to her friends It was generally believed that the handsome widow of Jovial Theodore Hostetter would not long wear her weeds when he passed away in a sanitarium in this city in August 1902 In a suit follow ing his death some of the enormous losses that Hostetter had sustained by flipping pennies for a thousand dollars a throw as well as frauds said to have been worked upon him in certain gam bling houses were known It was found by an examination of his check books and other memoranda that something like $1000000 was dis posed of In this way This loss by no means left the present Mrs Nichols without great wealth however Nich ols is a member of the New York Stock Exchange and also has a private fortune estimated in the millions A few years ago it was rumored that Nichols was engaged to Vivian Sar- toris granddaughter of General Grant the two having grown ud as

the scientific polariscope test according to a decision announced yesterday by the United States general appraisers The decision was given on a protest filed by Importers against a recent ruling of the United States circuit court of appeals The protestants had contended that the so-called "trade test" commercial test would have been sufficient under the regulations The largest sugar importers in the country are Interested in the settlement of the question and it will probably be taken to tb United States supreme court for final decision The amount involved in the rare alreadv haa yaA millions of dollars RESPONSIBILITY FIXED Boilermaker Anderson Caused Explo sion On Massachusetts Philadelphia Pa Dec 31— The cor oner's jury yesterday found that the explosion which occured Dec 16 on the battleship Massachusettsat the League Island navy yard resulting in the loss of three lives was due to the negligence of Peter Anderson a boilermak- The verdict was rendered on the testimony of John M

G Dun and Brad street's & Co New York Dec 30 — R G Dun & Co's weekly review of trade says Holiday week brought customary quiet conditions in the business -world Inventories and preparations for annual settlements monopolizing attention except in some branches of manufacture where immediate deliveries were re quired Annual reviews indicate that the year has made a much better show Ing than seemed possible at the outset the second half comparing very favorably with the first six months and the amount of business on the books in the leading industries promises still further improvement m iwo Buoyant sentiments prevail in the Iron and steel industry an exceptional condition at the close of the year and the outlook is bright for a continuation of activity The leather market is strong in tone because it is believed that footwear manufactures have had small stocks on hand and will purchase freely in the near future Although salesmen for New England shoe factories have se cured few spring orders in the West ern tcrrlton' owing to the high prices demanded tbe limited supplies in the hands of jobbers and dealers will necessitate replacing of broken assort ments in the near future Buyers are expected next week in the Boston market for both spring and fall deliv ery "3 Trade In rubber goods is exceptional ly active Textile manufacturing is progressing satisfactorily despite the peculiar con ditions of the raw material markets Buvers of cotton Broods are reluctant to place orders on account of the sharp decline In cotton but the limited stock and difficulty of securing prompt de livery hold prices steady Woolen goods are advancing because of the upward tendency of raw wool and purchasers are more willing to place contracts prevailing rates Worsteds lead in popularity and dress goods are the least active but all products of wool are in a strong position Cotton has provided the chief feature in the markets for the great staples The preliminary statement as to the amount of cotton ginned up to Dec 13 proved in excess of the largest esti mates 11848113 bales comparing with 8427259 bales last year counting round bales as half-bales Liquidation had been heavy up to the publication of the report and became still more violent prices falling far below all pre vious records for the year and show ing a loss of over $52 per bale for spot middling uplands as compared with the highest price of the year Commercial failures this week in the United States are 252 against 232 in the corresponding week last year Failures in Canada number 11 against 17 last year Bradstreet's Report New York Dec 30 — 'Bradstreet's state of trade says: Distributive trade generally Is marking time while past results and future prospects are subjects of consideration A period of marked even unexpected activity In holiday goods of higher than usual quality has brought to a close a year which because of marked improvement in the last quarter has ended better than it began and certainly in far better shape than seemed possible at the turn of the year The cotton goods manufacturing trade has been again unsettled by the slump in cotton to below cost of production and Southern trade has been depressed in tone thereby At the East distributive trade Is quiet while manufacturing except at Pall River is active Enlarged supplies of water In the streams help paper manufacturing Stocks of wool at Boston are the smallest in years Shoe shipments from Eastern points for 1904 are smaller than 1903 by 7 per cent but a good volume of orders for spring has been booked Southern trade feels the slump in cotton keenly but there Is a disposition to believe that the South will not sacrifice its product at below productive cost Collections drag slightly at present but Improvement In the outlook is expected In the new year The government report showing 11-848000 bales not Including llnters ginned In 737 counties a partial report was another severe blow to the cotton market already staggering under previous depressing estimates A heavy fall to the lowest price of the year— 685 cents— for middlings marks a loss of 1040 cents from the high p ice on Feb 1 of over two cents from the low point In 1903 and prices are now only 1 cents above the lowest point in 50 years touched In 1898 After this time a year ago 1300000 bales were apparently ginned so that the Increased estimates of trfte yield are now placed at fully 13000000 bales It Is doubtful however whether more than 12000000 bales will appear in this year's movement because Southern producers evince a disposition to look for better prices The break In the raw material has had the effect of drawing buyers away from the cotton goods branch of the trade Op the other hand sellers lack a reliable basjs for future transactions and the market Is practically at a standstill pending a clearing up of the situation Small clearance sales occupy jobbers Wool Is strong and stocks in dealers' hands are the lightest in years This makes for strength In the finished product business in which is how-eye r light Business failures for the week ending Dec 29 number 218 against 209 In the like week In 1903 Business is seasonably quiet in Canadian wholesale centers but good'snow roads help country distribution and retail business has also been stimulated somewhat by cold weather Failures for the week number 20 against 37 last week and 18 this week a year ago TRADE REPORTS It would be hard to imagine anything more flat or uninteresting than the present situation in the cotton goods market This status however has been generally discounted and there is no great disappointment at the lack of business shown by buyers The latter are principally inquiring for price revisions which they are not securing and find that sellers will not give protection and In many cases are compelled to offer deliveries which are practically out of reason The situation so far as the jobber Is concerned is not likely to be changed materially for some time although the aggregate business ia expected to be Increased shortly after the first of the year The matter ot cancellations is not a very disturbing one to the trade inasmuch as In many cases they are welcoming such action on the part of the buyerB in order to accommodate those who are clamoring for deliveries Where there is any possibility of such attempts at cancellation and the manufacturer is not willing to accede every endeavor will be made to make prompt deliv eries Cotton mid upland spot N Y 695c Print cloths 28-inch standard 2c Print cloths 28-inch 64x60 2c Gray

RIGHT Final Bulletin of Bureau Verifies Big Figure for the Year Washington Dec 31— The government officials who are charged with gathering cotton statistitfe do not offer much consolation to the cotton raisers of the South who want to burn the excess in this year's large crop to force up prices for what is left The final bulletin of the census bureau on cotton ginned lu the United Slates up to Dec 13 issued yesterday places the number ot bales at 11971477 counting round bales as half bales The total number of all kinds of bales reported was 12109828 Theae figures cover the reports made by the agents of the census bureau up to Dee 13 last and are the total for that canvas Director North of the census bureau distussing the work of the bureau yesterday said that no sane man in the South questioned the accuracy of the figures "We all think" said Mr North "that the figures of the department of agriculture are well within the mark We have not been imposed upon anywhere and there Is every reason to say that the figures stand good and are under the actual crop For the economy of the situation little can be said "To burn cotton that may be In demand next year at a good price is one thing To warehouse It and finance advances to the planters for it is another It is al! good for from 6 to 6H cents 1 am receiving letters and telegrams from all parts of the South in regard to the matter To-day I had a full statement of the situation from Representative Levering of Massachusetts probably the largest cotton spinner In the United States and the receiver of the American Cotton company He has just travelled all through the cotton country Mr Lovering ontainea intor-mation from hundreds of sources to the effect that the market price paid the cost Six to six and a half cents will give the raiser -a living supply maintenance for animals pay insurance and storage and carry the country through the year until another crop is raised" COTTON PLEDGE LARGELY SIGNED Growers

GINNERS' ASSOCIATION Secretary Connell Replies to Charges of Director of the Census North Dallas Texas Dec 31 —A letter was Issued yesterday by J H Connell secretary of the National Ginners' Association declaring that the ginners and farmers are in accord with the census bureau on the cotton estimates He says: "Mr North in yesterdayl's Washington dispatches complains to Congressman Burleson without cause regarding the disposition of the National Ginners' Association to destroy the work of the census bureau Here and there farmers are found who declare that the census cotton estimates have been hurtful to the growers' Interests but no large organization of farmers have so expressed themselves as indicated In Mr North's statement As secretary of the National Cotton Ginners' Association I am prepared to state positively that no criticism of the bureau's wofk was permitted to pass though some severe strictures were offered for consideration Just why Mr North should assume that it Is the object of the-National Cotton Ginners' Association to gather information regarding the amount of cotton produced in advance of the report is beyond my understanding and at variance with the Intention of the association There Is certainly in the constitution and by-laws of the National Cotton Ginners' Association nothing to justify the fear expressed by Mr North" Secretary Connell quotes from a letter written to Mr North by J F Taylor president of the National Cotton Ginners' Assoclatlqn which he says "refutes the assumptions contained in the communication addressed to Mr Burreson" SAY6 HE WAS A CHUMP President of Cotton Ginners Advises Holding Back Information Atlanta Ga Dec 31— At a meeting of a number of ginners of Georgia and Alabama here yesterday President J F Taylor of the National Ginners' Association urged the ginners to retain information regarding cotton produced Among other things he said: "The government report of the cotton crop is totally incorrect These reports are as far wrong ss anything I know of Many ginners did not count their bales correctly often adding many hundred bales more than they had already ginned In many instances the number of bales ginned was guessed at I have come to the conclusion ttrat I and the other ginners were chumps for giving out the reports" HONEYMOON IN CELLS Brothers of 14-Years-Old Girl
